$710,000 Settlement Sum for Lorry Driver Who Fell From Height In Workplace Accident

Mr. Neo, a 51 year old lorry driver who became paralysed as a result of a workplace accident has reached a settlement with his employers for a compensation sum of $710,000 in the High Court.

The accident happened on 14 June 2016 when the elevated platform Mr. Neo was walking on to carry out works had collapsed, causing him to fall from a height of 3.5m and he sustain severe injuries to his spine and limbs as a result.

Mr. Neo’s lawyers, Hoh Law Corporation, initiated a claim against Mr. Neo’s employers for negligence in ensuring a safe working environment for their employee, which resulted in the said accident. The compensation sum agreed upon was calculated based on Mr. Neo’s pain and suffering, cost of medical expenses, and loss of income due to the accident.
